Helicopter Could be ‘Scout’ for Mars Rovers in 2020 mission.

According to this paper:

Features of the system include: total mass of 1 kg; counter-rotating propellers designed for use the thin Martian air; powered by solar charged batteries; a high resolution downward looking camera for navigation, landing, and science surveying of the terrain; and a communication system to relay data to the rover.

And is that a CubeSat as its fuselage?
